Happy Anniversary India.
I am so proud of you my darling.
Ten years ago,
received a life changing diagnosis.
You were told that from that moment on,
who was afraid of blood,
would have to prick yourself to bleed.
who hated math,
would have to learn the carbohydrate count
of every item you put in your mouth.
who was terrified of needles
would have to give yourself shots
many times a day.
would have to say "no" to things that
most people take for granted.
would have to learn to read all the subtle,
and not so subtle,
cues your body would give you.
would have to learn to stand up
for your health needs,
even when people called you
would learn to depend on God
for your every breath.
be the best "you"!
that God created you to be.
Never forget the verse that you claimed
as yours when you were a tiny girl.
"For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future."
You fought the battle.
You decided to win!
I love you my girl.
